Winter Fun...Even for a Summer Girl

A new tradition emerged this Family Day weekend! We weren't really planning on doing much of anything but then Shawn proposed a Winterlude getaway and it didn't take much convincing after that!
Really, I'm not much of a winter fun kinda girl. I like to do the odd thing but I'd take some sand and sun over it all! But this was fun! Best of all, Gavin loved it! He had his first Beaver Tail treat and plenty of hot chocolate too.
The weather was perfect for walking around the Byward Market and the various Winterlude sites. We bundled up in our snow gear and out we went for some ice slides, tubing, and to finish it off, a skate on the Rideau Canal. I'd never done this before and it was quite cool! Gavin is getting so much more confident so it was fun to see him in action!
Our hotel had a nice warm pool for the boys to play in and I quite enjoyed the hot tub! And naturally, it's always great to eat out and enjoy something new!
So, it would seem that this may very well be a new Windsor tradition.
